"I’m not saying the military is in love with me. The soldiers are. The top people in the Pentagon probably aren’t because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs, that make the planes and everything else, stay happy." In that outburst, Trump was making a radical argument: that the U.S. military is not a force for peace but is addicted to war. It is the profit motive of defense corporations — not a desire to deter aggressors, protect allies or uphold international law — that has driven decisions to use military force. The figure most associated with this kind of thinking is Noam Chomsky, the famous linguist who emerged during the Vietnam War as an anti-war prophet. In his book "Manufacturing Consent," he argues that not only does the military have an interest in perpetual war — but that the media is in on it, too.
Noam Chomsky said earlier this week that former President Donald Trump is the "one Western statesman" who has laid out a "sensible" proposition to resolve the Russia-Ukraine crisis. Chomsky added that Trump is not his "favorite person" and thinks "he’s the most dangerous person maybe in history. But let’s tell the truth: he’s the one person who’s said it and it’s the right way out," he said. "Others have said it too but not in high positions."
Though many do not agree with the views of Chomsky, few would dispute that he is sincere and humble in his quest for truth. He is not afraid to challenge the popular narrative, and he will agree with a person on the other end of the political spectrum when he knows that they are right. Though Donald Trump is unorthodox, Chomsky notes that he proved himself to be an effective negotiator when he was president, especially when dealing with dictators. While North Korea had been a nuclear threat when Barack Obama was in office, Trump managed to ease these tensions and as a result, the world became a much safer place.
